    Hello, everyone!

    What tool are you using to organize and surf through the large collection of assets (photos, icons etc.).
    Do this tool have some drawbacks, that makes search and navigation complicated ?
     
  2. I use finder generally MacFan5... welcome to the forum by the way :)

    Thanks, chrismitchell :)

    And what about Windows ?

    I develop a powerful assets organizer, and would like to hear some opinions about handling large collections.
     
  4. I don't really bother in windows.. I just use windows explorer.. I don't use any specific programs for asset organisation.. as if you are in any way computer literate you will organise your files in a logical way and know where things are :)

    Just my opinion :)

    Windows Vista x64 - explorer along with a few additional codecs/plugins so I can see my animations, photoshop and acrobat thumbnails again :)

    Plus I'm relatively organised.

    Windows 7 when I get it will be the same.

    As for me, as an developer, i have a large (very large) set of materials/ideas, and even OneNote 2010 does't fits my need's :) And the problem is lack of powerful navidation :)

    What types of files do you have ?

    CAD, raw images/video, maps and materials for 3D models, 3D resource models.

    They're all in organised folders on my server and any important things are duplicated via sync software between it and my workstations

    I meant in house server not web server, no way would I want to work that way I've had files nearly a gig in size and they would take forever to download :(
